Energy bubbles needed

Hubby dragged me out of the house today for some fresh air, I went under protest and moaned and groaned about it all the way there - well some of the way there.

My energy levels are extremely low at the moment because I haven't been sleeping too well with this shitty cough.

I'm sure youngest mm, hubby and I attracted some attention today with the rib breaking coughs that we all have.

We ventured to the fresh produce outdoor markets at Port Adelaide. Today was a beautiful spring day (even though we're still a few weeks away from the end of winter), the sun was shining and there was a nice breeze. I got most of my fruit and veg shopping done - strangely this is all I feel like eating at the moment. My body obviously knows what it needs.

We then had lunch at a nice harbourside pub and sat outside and enjoyed the beautiful weather. By the time we got home I was grumpy, tired and barking like a dog with this stupid cough. Swallowed a batch of medicine (nothing with codeine in it mum so you can relax) and had a couple of puffs on a ventolin inhaler (which seems to be making some difference)

I slept solidly for two hours, fresh air did what it needed to do and gave me some much needed sleep. Finally!

I have a huge week ahead and I just wish I could summon some energy from somewhere. This week will be our last week in the old corporate building. The company I work for has been in this building for 50 odd years and in truth the building is falling down around our ears. That means this week also needs to incorporate packing up desks and ensuring we're all ready for the move on Friday.

We have induction visits to the new corporate offices, celebratory and farewell to the old building events, plus the week of work that I'm behind after having last week off. Son is also at tech college this week which will mean being out of the house by 7am this week as well.

Energy - if only I could drink a big glass of it at the moment, no in truth I probably need to immerse myself in it. A big bathtub of energy - hmm sounds delightful.

Have a great week all

Cheers, Fi

  1. Have you tried Vick's VapoRub on your feet for the cough? Anything with methol in it might help. It helps my daughters' cough when they get bad allergies. Just a thought.


Everyone has something valuable to say and I would love for you to share your thoughts
